Dawn at By Sun and Candlelight had a cute meme. I thought it would be a fun one. I so love books...
Here are the rules...
Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
Open the book to page 123.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the next three sentences.
Tag five people.
(I did cheat a little, the first book I picked up (Charlotte Mason Companion by Karen Andreola) didn't really have 3 good sentences on that page. I used a book that I like page 123 better) :-)
This is from my all time favorite book. It tells about Emilie's life growing up...
Those were hard years after my father died, when Mama and I shared three rooms behind her little dress shop. Mama waited on the customers, did alterations, and worked on the books until late at night. I kept house - planning and shopping for meals, cooking , cleaning, doing laundry - while going to school and learning the dress business as well.
The Spirit of Loveliness by Emilie Barnes
